Cancer leaves families with a feeling of helplessness and devastation. Aside from the physicality’s- it also causes an enormous financial burden to families. Medical bills, treatments, and hospital stays are only a few of the expenses. In many cases, one or more parent needs to stop working to be available to attend appointments, causing extreme monetary hardship. Fortunately, there is hope for a cure through spreading awareness and donating to research, but families need immediate assistance on the road to a cure. Lallis & Higgins’ very own Anthony Lallis is doing just that!
As a survivor of childhood leukemia, Anthony knows firsthand the devastating impact a Cancer diagnoses brings to families- physically, mentally, and financially. In 2017 Anthony had successfully raised over $50,000 for Cancer research and was honorably titled Man of the Year by the Massachusetts’ Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The search for a cure is far from over, and neither is Anthony’s mission to help. With a new approach to raising money and awareness, Anthony hopes to raise another $50,000 by stepping into the ring, an d help lessen the financial burden to families by giving them direct funding for the expenditures that come with Cancer.
